RIP Patrick McGoohan

Just read that Emmy-winning actor Patrick McGoohan, best known for starring in cult 1960s TV show The Prisoner, has died in Los Angeles at the age of 80. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7829267.stm

I remember The Prisoner from when the series was screened the first-time around (in Black & White) and only recently managed to collect the whole series on dvd - enjoyed rewatching but in colour this time. McGoohan played No 6 - who famously insisted 'I am not a number, I am a free man!'

If you ever get the chance do visit Portmerion in North Wales - 'The Village' where the series was filmed - it's a magical place (http://www.portmeirion-village.com/)
